Rouge was rescued in TN from being chained in the yard during the past winter freeze. Our southern partner rescue had been looking after her for quite some time. Finally, during the midst of the winter freeze, the owners decided to surrender her. We were more then happy to oblige in finding her a new home!
Rouge is a total sweetie pie girl with beautiful “blue” fur. She is gentle, quiet, and loves to run and play with other dogs. She also likes to play in the water!
Because she has not had many opportunities to explore and discover, she is a bit hesitant with new people and surroundings.
The best home for Rouge will provide her with the structure and patience to build her confidence and have at least one playful confident canine sibling to help her transition into the lifestyle of an inside dog!
Rouge is crate trained and always expects a treat once inside. She is very treat motivated! She keeps her crate clean and dry and waits quietly for her turn to go outside to potty and play. She is house trained when let out every few hours, not yet ready to give you cues that she needs to go outside, but she is getting there.
Rouge’s foster mom has been working hard on work on leash walking. Still in process, but has made definite strides!! She rides well in the car. Foster feels that she does need a fenced yard. And no city life for her….too much noise and stimulation. She loves the water- so a pond, lake or ocean she can play in would be fun for her!
Please consider adding Rouge to your household so she can continue to learn what it means to be a beloved member of a family! She will reward you richly with much laughter, love and attention!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
